A multi-camera visual sensing setup for intraoperative data acquisition inside the operation room is presented.
The system is designed to allow acquisition of visual information during surgery, which can be used to analyze
context information for surgical assistance or robotic systems. Based on a previously introduced system for data
acquisition, a new modular approach for a completely integrated and portable system is presented. Through
additional functionality, such as disinfectability, cooling of enclosed components and integration into surgical
workflow, it can be applied in surgical research projects, e.g. for the acquisition of staff movement data.
